This former NFL player running for Congress has strong words for Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick caused a massive stir when he started the anti-American anthem protests.

Many players joined Kaepernick in his protest, alienating fans and damaging the NFL’s ratings.

And one former NFL player running for congress didn’t mince words when he was asked about Colin Kaepernick.

When Kaepernick chose to kneel for the national anthem, he became a media darling for the Left.

He was showered with praise and awards, and many players even knelt alongside him.

But not everyone in the NFL was on board.

And some former players have been very critical.

Super Bowl XV champion Burgess Owens called out Kaepernick for being a socialist.

And another former NFL player who’s running for Congress also had some sharp words for the washed-up quarterback.

Breitbart reports:

“Colin Kaepernick is a national disgrace and I’m tired of seeing him celebrated like he’s a hero,” wrote Jeremy Staat in a fundraising letter. The former NFL defender is a candidate in California’s 8th Congressional District.

[…]

Staat was a second-round pick of Pittsburgh in the 1998 draft, and spent three seasons with the Steelers. He then had a brief stint with the St. Louis Rams and in the Arena League, but quit football in 2004, and joined the Marines, after his Arizona State football teammate Pat Tillman was killed in action.

In March of 2007, Staat was deployed to Haditha, Iraq as an infantry machine gunner.

“Unlike Kaepernick, I gave up a career in the NFL and joined the Marines after 9/11 when my nation needed me,” Staat stated. “I followed the example of my friend, Pat Tillman, whom I played football with at ASU and I’ve never looked back.”

Staat doesn’t want Kaepernick’s anti-American hatred to be conflated with heroism.

Kaepernick has sacrificed nothing.

In fact, his career trajectory was on a path of obscurity.

Trashing America has brought Kaepernick international attention, endorsement deals from Nike, a book contract, and even movie offers.

Staat clearly has gratitude for the country.

He defended the freedoms that Kaepernick spits on.

While Kaepernick will get the outsized media exposure, it’s good to know that other members of the NFL fraternity do not stand with him.

  4. Colin Kaepernick has no respect for himself or anyone else. This is unfortunate as his parents taught him better and its not their fault. He thinks more of himself than anyone else.
    He should be slinced by not allowing him any media outlet reviews.

  5. Culper Ring says:

    Many Americans’ complaints extend far beyond the United States’ endorsement of chattel slavery, as there had long been problems of segregation of the armed forces, and lack of equal protection of the laws, contrary to the fourteenth amendment. Of course, one could certainly argue those other caustic bits were eliminated by 1970, near around the time that the flow of illegal drugs into the United States skyrocketed, concentrated toward easy targets therein.
